In-Sessional Departmental Courses
English Language Programmes also provide tailored support within academic Schools, specifically developed to meet the needs of a particular course or subject area.
During the 2012/13 academic year, support will be available in the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff Business School, Cardiff Law School, Cardiff School of Engineering, Cardiff School of Social Sciences, Cardiff School of Planning and Geography, Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies and Department of Dermatology (Cardiff School of Medicine). The courses address academic skills to suit the needs of the students.
As part of the support in schools, the workshops offered by the In-Sessional team may include the following areas:
• Avoiding plagiarism
• Critical reading
• Reading and reformulating
• Academic style
• Extended writing
• Language improvement
• English for dissertation writing
A short course in English for research writing will be delivered by English Language Programmes via the Graduate Centre in May.
